Administrator: This teacher role allows access to adding/removing students and teachers, creating classes, setting tasks and assessments. You can access all features on the FlashAcademy Teacher Dashboard with admin rights.

Flashcard: The Flashcards cover the vocabulary that students will learn in the lesson. Each word has an icon, audio, and a video to help with pronunciation; some have been put into sentences for more context. Any grammar, vocabulary, or culture tips that appear in the lesson can also be found here.

Full-Access: As a Full-Access teacher, you can see the classes that you have been assigned to by an Admin. You can set tasks and assessments and reset student passwords, but you cannot add/remove students from the Teacher Dashboard.

Games: Games are not a mandatory part of FlashAcademy, but they are available to students after they have completed 2 lessons in a category. These are word games based on the vocabulary learnt in the completed lessons.

Home Language: Students can learn English from their home language when selecting their language pathway on logging in. If we don't currently offer a student's home language or they are non-literate, select the English to English language pathway.

Lesson: Lessons contain different challenges to help students learn vocabulary whilst also developing their reading, listening, writing, and speaking skills.

Limited-Access: As a Limited-Access teacher, you can only view the information of students who have been assigned to you by an Administrator. 

Object Translator: FlashAcademy’s Object Translator is a feature available on the installed version of our app on mobile devices. It allows you to take a photo of an object and generates a translation of that object.

WebApp: Our WebApp is the version of our app that is used on a browser, it can be accessed at web.flashacademy.com and we recommend Google Chrome for best performance.

XP points: XP points are the points earned through the completion of lessons and games in the FlashAcademy App. A student can earn a maximum of 1000XP points per lesson.
